Re: Pobody’s Nerfect! Para 3 calamity.

It only makes sense, it's basically a Paramilitary 2, except with a 3" blade. I remember so many people being chastised for calling it a "PM3" on the Spyderco FB group, lol

Re: Favourite method to open PM2?

Usually a thumb flick, but I also do a sort of 'modified spydie drop' where I pinch the hole with my thumb, index and middle finger and squeeze until the detent pops free and it falls open from the weight of the handle.

Re: Spyderco Para 3 LW Drop

What are the two extra holes around the pivot on the blade for? Maybe it has something to do with that extra metal piece that goes around the pivot and stop pin. I guess that means we can't swap blades between the g10 and frn models... :( Iirc, they are there to tell the different blade steels apar...

Re: Favorite Steels

204P is one of my favorites, sharpens easily and takes a nice polish. 20CV is about the same, Pepsi vs. Coke I guess. After that I'd go with something like S35VN, I find it's pretty similar to 204P and 20CV in practice. As far as semi or non-stainless I'd take Rex 45 or M4 anyday of the week. Good e...

Re: Have you ever simply just NOT been able to remove a screw? Even when there's not thread locker?

loctites spec for threadlockers for the auto industry even blue is overkill for screws of this size and purple is what more called for. I agree, with a good set of tools you should be able to torque everything down good enough to where it won't back out, although I do like blue 243 loctite for pivo...

Re: The Drunken: Amazing Knife, Ruined by its Pocket Clip.

Ended up tearing it apart, polished the washers with mother's mag and added a drop of oil to the pivot and dialed in the action. Nice and smooth. At this point the only thing bugging me is the gosh darn clip :mad:

Re: The Drunken: Amazing Knife, Ruined by its Pocket Clip.

I've had mine a couple days now. Tbh, I immediately thought of returning it, but it's growing on me. The clip is pretty bad, no way around that. However, I think it could easily be solved by bending it for more clearance or an aftermarket clip. That should never be the case on a $410 knife. Aestheti...

I can't say with 100% certainty, but for the most part it looks legit to me. Afaik, the fakes don't include the pouch which is a good sign.

Re: Paramilitary 2, a delicate knife?

If you drop it or use it as a pry bar you'll probably snap the tip off. I've done it, not a big deal though. You can shape it similar to the Delica and re-sharpen and it's good to go.

Re: Dedicated Vehicle Emergency Knife

I keep a cheap $7.99 tactical mall ninja special in my glove box. The blade is serrated and sharp enough to slice through a seatbelt, and it has a glass breaker on the other end. I've thought about getting something nicer but I figure it will get the job done if needed.

Re: S110V Acid Wash?

Ferric chloride will etch s110v just fine. Make sure you clean it really well beforehand with hot water and dish soap, and then some acetone or isopropyl to remove any oil. Dip it in your ferric solution in 5 minute increments until you get your desired result. After that you can leave it as is, or ...

Re: Am i just lucky with my super steels?

"Super Steel Scaremongering"

Tbh, I haven't really found any steels that I'd consider difficult to sharpen. I mainly stick with SiC, CBN, and diamond stones though.
